This beach is very pretty and close to Pahoa. It is where Lava Tours are located. Plenty of free parking, shade trees and safe place for kids to swim. I went with my adult children.

A nice little stop to see the ocean. Heavy waves today that had some great splashes. Lot of fishing going on. Not much in the way of beach but there was some surfing going on.
